    I am sharing some techniques to fix brother printer printing blank pages. You can try them to resolve your problem.

    1. Check the ink label on your printer. Make sure; you have enough ink to print a paper if you don’t have enough ink in the cartridge. You need to replace the ink cartridge and then try to print again.
    2. Reboot the printer and computer once. After rebooting the devices, wait for one minute.
    3. Try to copy a document on your brother printer if it can copy the file. It means the problem is related to the driver. In this case, you need to uninstall the printer driver and reinstall it.

    I was going through brother printer is printing blank pages due to the loose spring circuit.  That’s why my black ink cartridge was not functioning.
